‘The BIGGEST ever’: Will you be at the March for Choice this Saturday?

by

This Saturday marks the 5th annual March for Choice in Dublin.

And with TDs and Senators alike coming together in order to repeal the Eight Amendment, it's certainly going to be a day to remember.

The Abortion Rights Campaign is organising the march and their spokesperson Michali Hyams said: “We expect thousands to join the march to call for free, safe and legal abortion in Ireland, our numbers have doubled year on year with 10,000 taking to the streets last September.

"The crowd will assemble at the Garden of Remembrance on Parnell Square at 1.30pm before marching to Leinster House at 2pm.”

An abundance of TDs and Senators, who are representing almost every party in the Oireachtas will attend a press conference before the march and are expected to speak out before joining ARC for a 1916-themed photocall.

Independent TD Clare Daly said: "The Abortion Rights Campaign’s annual March for Choice will be bigger and bolder than ever.

"The call for a Repeal of the 8th Amendment is turning into a roar, with today's generation demonstrating it is no longer willing to see women treated as second-class citizens."

We're certainly going to be there. Are you?
